At The Jefferson School we are reimagining education — one engaged, motivated child at a time.
The Jefferson School believes that children who are actively engaged in hands-on, nature-centered, experiential learning:
- are more readily able to absorb new ideas and integrate them with their current knowledge.
- develop a passion for both lifelong learning and global awareness.
- develop an early connection to the natural world as well as a desire to preserve it.
To that end, The Jefferson School strives to offer an exceptional, active learning environment of nature-centered strategies for children from preschool through grade 8.
The Jefferson School is recognized as a leader in developing and promoting relevant, hands-on, nature-centered educational strategies for students from preschool through grade 8.
We are dedicated to understanding and applying how optimal learning occurs in children. Click here for the latest information and research.
